Christmas is coming

Time to put up the Christmas Tree. I know it's a bit early, but since we are leaving on our holiday on the 15th, we really don't have long to admire it. We also had a little help from our friends - Alison and Peter.

My Young Women

Preparing for Christmas, I taught the Young Women how to make Gingerbread houses. The girls had lots of fun making them, especially the decorating part. However they all plan to make another one before Christmas because, sadly, the current ones didn't quite make it (way too tempting they said).


Here's a couple of pictures of Gus and Tilly dressed up for Halloween this year. Gus went for the pirate look and Tilly is "Jasmin" from Aladdin (in case you couldn't tell). We had a big Halloween party of about 80 kids - lots of fun activities and of course trick-a-treating.
